Gene: Gcgr (glucagon receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gcgr
Name: glucagon receptor
RGD ID: 2669
Description: Exhibits glucagon receptor activity and peptide hormone binding activity. Involved in adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; exocytosis; and hormone-mediated signaling pathway. Localizes to endosome and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human GCGR (glucagon receptor); PARTICIPATES IN G protein mediated signaling pathway via Galphas family; glucagon signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazinane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: GL-R; glucagon receptor perhaps same as Niddm3; MGC93090
